Photographer's Note

Snow and rain in Tuscany...
"Il rigo" means "the line"...this tree stands close to the farm "Il rigo" in Val d´Orcia.

About the photo: I opened up the aperture to the maximum, it causes the effect of vignetting (dark corners), esp. in the dark twilight. Usually this effect is removed by the camera or during converting the pic from RAW into JPG. In this case I left it as it is and converted it to sepia.
To avoid camera shake due to mirror movement I set the focus to manual and put the live mode on.
